A Performance by Takako Minekawa
Japanese sound artist and vocalist Takako Minekawa has been experimenting with the relationship between the body and tubes. For her new performance produced during her PAM residency, Minekawa animates glass and physiological tubes through a playful score utilizing narrative, movement, and experimental sound techniques to create an environment both familiar and alien.
Keio Inokashira Line of Tokyo Train
When I get on that express, always hear strange sounds
It sounds like a Japanese festival musical sounds , high pitch..
Actually, I think that the speed is so high that I can hear the shrill noise of the air from the gaps in the door.
Yes, it’s a draft..
winter the wind.
I feel some draft
Draft comes in through the gap of the train door
and my breath.
